Dark Dark Dark celebrate the release of Who Needs Who, the follow-up to 2010's Wild GoWho Needs Who is a stirring and rich body of songs that sees the band breaking ground, and settling into the strengths of a quintet that has worked incredibly hard, both on the road and in their personal lives. "Many of these songs are about understanding and accepting the nuances of my emotions. The obvious parts and the dark parts. There are times when it’s important to quit fantasizing and face the truth about what is happening,” says primary writer and singer Nona. Who Needs Who is ultimately refreshing and rewarding, and marks the beginning of a bold and promising chapter for Dark Dark Dark.

Originally formed by long-time college friends singer-songwriter Bryan Steenerson and accordionist Nathan Simar, the lineup now includes cellist Ryan Pfeiffer, violinist Christopher Becknell, and drummer Alex Budrow.

A collaboration of artists and musicians, The Poor Nobodys are a 7-piece outfit from Minneapolis. After handcrafting songs in the Twin Cities for over three years, they finally recorded their self-titled EP last May and just finished recording their first full-length album Until I Uproot and Walk Again.

Evelyn Evelyn

Ladies and Gentlemen!  Critics and hipsters!

We are proud to introduce "Evelyn Evelyn" - the world's only conjoined-twin singer-songwriter duo.

Discovered and launched by punk-cabaret queen Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls) and endless minstrel Jason Webley, Evelyn Evelyn is one of the most anticipated acts of 2010.  After three full years in the studio, the Evelyn sisters are gearing up for a world tour in support of their debut album, which hits the shelves on March 30th.

Epic in scope and production, the twelve tracks on "Evelyn Evelyn" showcase the twins' uncanny talent and versatility as musicians.  With a background in circus performance and a wide, bizarre range of influences, the twins compose original timeless songs full of humor, sadness, and double entendre.
